Galaxy Note 10 Exclusive Reveals Samsung’s Surprise Upgrade

Samsung is heavily redesigning the Galaxy Note 10 with some killer tech, but it appeared the company was about to blow the basics. Until now.

Following news Samsung is pulling 25W fast charging from the Galaxy Note 10 (seemingly because it’s rubbish), popular insider Ice Universe has updated his information to reveal Samsung will actually fit a charger more powerful than 25W. Moreover, I have also been able to verify this myself through a trusted source.

“You should be thinking bigger [not smaller]. That’s all I can say about it right now but expect to be pleasantly surprised and not disappointed when the charging specs are released publicly,” revealed my source.

Similarly, Ice Universe added the image of Superman’s S logo in his update leading many to believe this teases 50-watt charging. While seemingly outlandish (the Galaxy S10 has a 15W charger), this is actually very real with Oppo’s SuperVOOC charger hitting approximately 50W and charging its Find X Lamborghini from 0-100% in just 35 minutes.

With this in mind, when Ice Universe notes Samsung’s “battery capacity and charging speed will no longer be Samsung’s weaknesses” and could even be an advantage, 50W is the bar set by the competition.

Furthermore, if Samsung nails this then it could prove to be the cherry on the top. We already know the Galaxy Note 10 will outgun the S10, feature a better camera and Verizon has let the cat out of the bag that the Note will have 5G at launch. So throw ballistic fast charging into the mix and Samsung is going to have a big hit on its hands.

Samsung Pay Comes to Africa, Launching In South Africa – Toby Shapshak

Samsung Pay, the mobile payment from the world’s largest smartphone maker, has launched in South Africa.

Calling it the first such service in Africa, Samsung has partnered with two of South Africa’s big banks, Absa and Standard Bank through MasterCard and Visa cards.

The system took three years to set up, says Sung Yoon, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics Africa, working with the banks and the regulatory body, the Payments Association of South Africa (Pasa).

Because of the country’s mobile-first nature, he says “acceptance of Samsung Pay at launch in South Africa is much better than 2015 in the US when it launched. People in South Africa understand the technology better today, too, than users in the US did three years ago.”

Samsung Pay uses Galaxy handsets from the world’s largest smartphone maker to make payments using both MST and NFC technology – or tapping your phone on a point-of-sale terminal.

Once the app has been installed and credit cards have been added, people can make a payment just by authenticating themselves in the app – using a Pin code, fingerprint or iris scan.

The security is built on its “defence-grade Samsung Knox security platform and biometric authentication” which it installs on its smartphones.
